Brandon Jones

Any chance he makes it to the majors before August 1?

Granted, he hasn't exactly been tearing the cover off the ball so far this year, but he has posted a line of .291/.354/.520 in AA Mississippi so far this year.  He's always been labelled as a "toolsy" guy, and he started actually putting together the tools with production last year.

Though not anywhere near as hyped, his situation seems eerily similar to Frenchy's in 2005.  He's in a Braves organization that is not afraid to push prospects to fill needs in the bigs, and LF is a gaping hole in the Braves OF right now.  He's been producing at a decent clip, and the opportunity is there.  The only difference I can see is that Atlanta has a good trading chip available this time in Salty who could return a really good LF (Griffey would be a good fit, assuming Cincy picks up a large chunk of his salary).  

What does everyone think Jones' chances of "pulling a Frenchy" are?
